The Diplomat Season 2 Adds Its First New Character

Season 2 of The Diplomat introduces a new character. Starring Keri Russell, Rufus Sewell, and David Gyasi, the first season of The Diplomat debuted on Netflix last year.

 Debora Cahn, whose prior TV credits include Fosse/Verdon, Grey's Anatomy, and The West Wing, conceived the show. The Diplomat's second season was quickly renewed after it debuted.

According to Variety, Allison Janney has been cast in a part for the second season of The Diplomat. Janney will take over as Vice President Grace Penn in a guest star role. She has not yet revealed any information about the plot of her season 2 part.

In the first season of The Diplomat, viewers followed US Ambassador Kate Wyler as she navigated an international crisis and was thrown into disarray. 

The first season follows Kate as she takes on a project that she finds too challenging, leading to problems in her marriage. 

After The Diplomat's season finale ended on a cliffhanger due to a vehicle bombing that may have killed some important individuals, season two will take up where season one left off.
